USC tailback Delon Washington has not played this football season because he lied to Pacific 10 Conference officials during their investigation of a controversial class that allegedly gave special treatment to athletes in the spring of 1995, The Times has learned. Washington, USC's leading rusher last season, was originally suspended for one game by the school but then was given an additional two-game suspension by the NCAA for what the school has said was an "ethical violation."
